Lyrics

Follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Treat them with care
Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun

Follow, follow the sun
The direction of the birds
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air
Cherish this moment
Cherish this breath
Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun

When you feel life coming down on you like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest water’s edge, remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came
(High:) So which way is the wind blowing
(Low:) What does your heart say

Follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done

    Dear Lisa,
    Where do I find the sheet music of this 3-part arrangement?
    I’m a choral conductor. A couple asked this song for their wedding service and I should like to rehearse it next Thursday.

      Thanks for your inquiry Willem. I’m sorry I teach by oral tradition and don’t have sheet music for this song or most arrangements on my site.
